PARENT CLUBS

Just as United States Air Force Academy cadets support each other, parents of cadets support each other. They provide shoulders to lean on, voice their opinions, control rumors and develop lifelong friendships— many continuing their membership in a country-wide support system, long after their sons and daughters graduate.

There are nearly 100 parent clubs across the country. Join one in your state!

Local Parent Club Management

Parent Clubs exist because the Academy experience is unlike any other. Parent Clubs exist to provide support and help pass on information to new Academy parents, as well to ensure parents know what is going on at the United States Air Force Academy.

Parent Clubs also help parents support their cadets! At the Academy, try as we may, we cannot always adequately articulate the hardships associated with the regimen each cadet experiences. Parent Clubs can help to reassure parents, as well as and help them to understand that the pressures, on the cadets and their parents, are enormous from the very beginning and these pressures often disrupt communications between the students and the parents.

Parent Clubs help recruit other outstanding young men and women to the Academy, and host cadets when they travel for Academy-sponsored events. They sponsor tailgate parties at football games. They provide fans for “away” sporting events and cadet visits, host events at home such as; Appointee get together, military balls, and send care packages to cadets/cadet candidates. Some Parent Clubs provide financial support for cadet activities, which make the Academy a more enriching experience. Each club is run independently of each other and the Academy. Some Parent Clubs are bigger than others, and that is fine as we are all here to support the cadets and cadet candidates!

If you are a new Parent Club President please fill out the Parent Club President Form.

Parent Club Presidents Conference

Each year the Academy hosts a Parent Club Presidents Conference right before Parents Weekend. A Reception is normally held at the Superintendent’s home the Wednesday before Parents Weekend and the conference is Thursday at Doolittle Hall. You may sell your items during the conference.

On Friday of Parents Weekend, there is an Information Fair at Arnold Hall that some Parent Clubs have a table to sell approved products. As soon as the Parent Liaison gets the information required from Arnold Hall they will send out the required information to the Parents’ Club to submit for reservation.
